May 14, 2015

    Wednesday May 13, 2015 started out as a fairly nice day.

    Some cloud with mostly sunny skies.

    Looking SW yesterday morning.

    Clouds moved in quickly during the morning.

    By noon it was cloudy.

    Rain clouds by the evening.

    As of 07:00 Hours this am we have obscured skies and limited visibility.


For the forecast, the stationary low in the interior of Washington/Oregon will continue to bring unsettled conditions to the area for today, as it spins cloud at us in a Southeasterly flow. We should see some breaks later this morning into this afternoon. There is a chance of a thundershower later this afternoon. Another low with its centre off Vancouver Island is also creating some weak onshore flow. The blocked atmosphere will remain in our area into early next week with periods of sun, cloud and showers. Still feel we will get most of our precipitation during the evening hours. Sunday is now looking cloudy with Saturday looking like the sunnier dry day in the near future. Conditions will remain unstable and will change quickly.  Freezing levels will be above the local peaks.


    Still some precipitation coming from the Southeast.

    Should see some breaks later this morning.
